Kings Of Leon To Headline Isle of Wight festival 2011

Isle Of Wight Festival promoter John Giddings said: "We are proud to bring one of the world's biggest rock bands to the island on our 10th anniversary. It is an incredible way to start the weekend, I can't wait"

With that said Kings of Leon are slated to headline the "Isle of Wight Festival" In 2011. The band, whose fifth album, Come Around Sundown, recently reached No 1 in the charts, will top the bill for one night at the event in June.

Organisers say it will be their only major UK festival appearance in 2011.

These Tennessee boys, who headlined Glastonbury in 2008, have lined up a number of large outdoor events next summer, including a return to Hyde Park in London.

Next year's Isle of Wight festival will be the 10th since it was revived. It began life in the late 1960s, and has featured performances by Jimi Hendrix and the Who.
